20th century

three sketches of seated beauties

unsigned, ink and color wash on paper, ca. 1920

10 5/8 by 15 3/8 in., 27 by 38.9 cm

Bearing no signature or seal, these sketches bring to mind the work of Kitano Tsunetomi (1880-1947) or Ishii Hakutei (1882-1958), however, in reality, they could be the work of any number of artists or their followers working in the late Taisho or early Showa periods.
